2021 Kia K5 Horsepower

All trims except the GT comes with a standard turbo 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. This is paired with an eight-speed transmission. With this powertrain in your K5, you can appreciate the feel of 180 horsepower under your control. The GT trim level steps up with a 2.5-liter turbo, four-cylinder engine. This impressive 290-horsepower engine works in tandem with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. However, for the first time, there's the thrilling option of adding all-wheel drive to any trim. This enhancement actively distributes torque between all tires for more traction and control.
